Hearing implant journeys
“I have found the bone anchored hearing aid truly life changing; it has profoundly altered my self-perception and allowed me to do so much more. I would strongly encourage anybody thinking about a bone anchored hearing aid to have the trial band fitted and take it from there.”
“I dropped a pen on my desk to my amazement I heard the pen hit the desk and roll-over! This may sound simple and maybe not even earth shaking but I heard it with the Cochlear! I am truly grateful for the help that you and everyone at Ear Science, Subiaco Gwelup and Joondalup have given to me.”
“After switch on, the feeling was brilliant. Being able to hear things from all directions was a new sensation. Hearing the seatbelt slide over my shoulder was something that I had never heard before. It was the little, subtle things that made the biggest impact. The advice I would give to someone considering a BAHA implant is to do your research and speak to other recipients. There is a mentor program in place to assist people with their decisions by speaking to previous recipients. If the good outcomes outweigh the bad, do not hesitate, in my opinion; it is well worth the journey.”
“It has made a huge positive difference to my life and has been a dramatic improvement from the hearing aids. Over the years, I have told many people the same thing, to go ahead and do something about it if you are using hearing aids and they just aren’t good enough. Go ahead and consider a cochlear implant because it makes a big positive difference.”
Professor Russell F. Waugh
“The cochlear implant is as close to a miracle that you will ever experience.”
